Re  :Elk Roofing Products

Elk Roofing products have recently issued a new bulletin titled 
This bulletin confirms that Elk roofing products have been approved for use with
Icynene* in the unvented attic application since September 28, 1999. This bulletin is an
update and is intended to replace their letter of March 20, 2002.

We have much longer experience with unvented attic systems than stated in this
bulletin. This however defines the extent of our experience with Elk roofing products.
Point number 5 is an addition to the details contained in the original letter. This
statement means that it is the responsibility of the design professional to define the
requirement for mechanical ventilation of the occupied space.  This fits with the
message that we convey, build them tight and ventilate right.

We will receive printed copies of this bulletin for you to use. These can be obtained
from Icynene.


This will confirm Elk premium roofing products have been approved for use with 
spray-in-place Icynene Insulation System since September 28, 1999, and carry the full limited warranty
